Kris Jenner's taking no chances after Kim Kardashian came face-to-face with a stinky stalker outside the Jenner home last month -- Kris has now hired 24/7 security.
Kardashian sources tell TMZ, guards are parked outside the family home in 2 vehicles which monitor her Hidden Hills estate 24 hours a day -- and the guards are ARMED.
We're told she's paying several thousand bucks a month for the hired muscle.
Kris has had her share of scares over the last year -- threatening phone calls, paparazzi intruders, SWAT pranks -- but the stinker was the last straw.
TMZ broke the story, the 20-year-old man was taken into custody after allegedly sneaking onto Kris' property. Kim called security, who then alerted police. We're told the kid claimed he was Kendall Jenner's boyfriend and Justin Bieber's stepbrother. Oh yeah, and he smelled like death.
New Bachelor Pad Will Set Me Free
... From Commuting
4/14/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
When ballers like T.I. want to cut down their commute they do NOT carpool -- they just spend more cash on a new home ... closer to work. Genius.
Atlanta sources tell TMZ ... Tip just leased a 4 BR, European estate in the exclusive Buckhead neighborhood -- even though he and his wife Tiny already have a house in A-Town.
We're told ... the rapper's real estate motivation is simple. The place is just two minutes from his studio -- erasing his usual 40 minute drive home after a night of recording.
But check out the pics -- with a massive pool, outdoor kitchen, and entertainment area -- we doubt there will be a lot of sleep going down at this crash pad.
Family Fight Rages Over Rapper's Home
4/10/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
3 Years after Nate Dogg's death, his family is waging war over the sale of the late rapper's Pomona home.
According to court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the estate administrator agreed to sell the house last month for $340K.
But we're told some family members are trying to stop the deal because the administrator wants to use the money to pay off Nate's debts, leaving them with little ... and they want more.
We broke the story ... Nate's will provided that his 6 kids get the house, but 2 days after his death in March, 2011, the bank moved to foreclose because he'd fallen behind on his mortgage.
Now it's up to a judge whether the sale goes through.
Determined Stalker Charged With Crimes ... Again
4/7/2014 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The man who broke into Selena Gomez' property twice in a matter of days has been charged for a second time -- problem is ... it's hard to keep this guy in custody.
Che Cruz was arrested Friday after jumping Selena's fence at her Calabasas home. He was arrested and taken to jail, and this all happened just hours after he was released from jail for doing the exact same thing less than a week earlier.
Cruz was busted on March 31 after actually entering Selena's home. He pled no contest to the misdemeanor of unlawfully entering a dwelling and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. Problem is -- he was released less than 2 days later and made a beeline for Selena's home.
This time he's been charged with felony stalking and violating a criminal order of protection. If the felony charge sticks, maybe he'll be behind bars for a longer period of time. But if it's knocked down to a misdemeanor, jail will probably be another revolving door.
Khloe & French
Strip Club, House Hunting
Are they Banging?
4/7/2014 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian and rapper French Montana have been spending a lot of time together ... the kind of time that leads people to ask, "Are they banging?"
We're told French is on the hunt for a new pad and took Khloe along to check one out -- a 4,800 sq. ft. Hollywood Hills home that rents for $29,000/month. It's a 4 bedroom, 4 bath house with a wine and cigar cellar, a sauna, and screening room.
And, they hit up Pink Rhino in Phoenix this weekend where French was a promoted guest. We're told the pair and their entourage went through 10 bottles (on the house, of course) and shelled out $7K on girls.
Check out the video above of them entering the club, with his arm wrapped her. And then tell us ...

& Made It Even Better

Akon just took a perfectly fine suburban home in the San Fernando Valley and gutted it like a fish ... turning it into a SICK new party palace.
Real estate sources tell us Akon dropped just under $2 mil for an elegant 5-BR contemporary home with glass walls and concrete floors ... and then tore it apart.
Can't wait to see the welcome he gets from his new neighbors ... once they realize he also owns tigers.
Check out the pics of Akon's crib ... and tell us ....
Cops Roll on 911 Burglary Call
4/4/2014 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
1:20 P.M. PDT -- Police tell TMZ the suspect has been arrested for trespassing. It's not known if Selena was at home during the incident.
12:44 P.M. PDT -- Law enforcement tells TMZ the suspect has been detained and is currently being questioned about what he was doing at Selena's home.
Cops swarmed around Selena Gomez' Calabasas home Friday morning after someone reported a suspicious person ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Someone at the scene tells TMZ ... a man jumped a fence onto her property but it appears he was not a burglar ... more like a trespasser.
Selena has had her problems with unwelcome visitors. A guy was convicted in February after trespassing at her old house. He was sentenced to 120 days in jail.
And on March 31st ... another man was arrested on Selena's property while she was home. The guy rang the doorbell and asked the person who opened the door if Selena was home. He had broken into her guest house and was arrested for burglary and trespassing. It's unclear if he's still in custody.
As for the current incident ... as of the time of this post, no arrests have been made.
Unloading Baltimore Castle
... For a Royal Price
4/4/2014 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
With all of the trade rumors floating around this off-season, we expected ONE of the Harbaugh brothers to be moving ... but we didn't expect it would be the one in Baltimore.
We've learned ... Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh has just listed his sprawling 2-acre castle-esque property in Baltimore ... and he's asking for a cool $2.1 million.
Problem is ... John paid $2.34 mil when he bought the place back in 2008, according to our friends at Realtor.com ... so there's a damn good chance he could take a hit in the pocket -- unless a bidding war breaks out.
The house is huge -- 8,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms with a wishing well and a fire pit in the backyard. Plus, the estate is only 25 minutes from the stadium.
As for John's brother Jim -- the head coach in San Francisco -- so far, haven't heard anything about him selling his home. Guess that might depend on how the 49ers do this year.
I Left My Valley Dump For A Beach Home
4/3/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beware rich Westside dudes ... Oksana Grigorieva is on the prowl in Santa Monica ... she's moved into a luxurious beachfront home with stunning ocean views ... even though she's bankrupt.
Grigorieva -- who claimed she only had $10 cash when she filed for bankruptcy in Feb. -- moved out of the Valley house Mel Gibson got for her and their kid ... and into a luxury hi-rise at the beach.
We're told Oksana's ditched her Valley digs because the house flooded during a big rainstorm last month -- the same weekend she was seen trying to crash a post-Oscar party.
We're told Mel offered to move her temporarily into another place in the Valley but Oksana said "nyet" ... she wanted an upgrade to Santa Monica. We're told Mel refused to pay so Oksana somehow got enough money together to pay for the more expensive oceanfront rental. So how'd she do that?
Now she's bragging on social media about her new lifestyle ... posting pictures of her to-die-for ocean views and the chi-chi Westside restaurants where she hangs out.
Oksana should bottle that gall ... and sell it. It will more than pay for the ocean view.
Cuba Gooding Jr.
House Buyer Showed Me Tons of Money ...
As in $10 Million!!!
4/3/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
THIS is the kwan, Jerry ... Cuba Gooding Jr. just made at least SIX figures unloading his Pacific Palisades home -- and the buyer must love hockey because the crib includes a freakin' rink.
Gooding bought the contemporary English estate for $3.5 mil back in 2000 ... and sources tell us he just sold it for slightly under $10 mil!
Check out the pics ... The 7-bedroom home is equipped with a state-of-the-art theater, a 6-car garage and a basketball court/roller hockey rink in the back yard.
FUN FACT: Cuba's a huge ice hockey fan and plays in a lot of celebrity games. Odd ... "Snow Dogs" did NOT scare him off from all winter sports.
Creditor Hunts Him Down
In Swank Cali Beach Pad
4/2/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jordan Belfort's creditors are baffled that the real-life Wolf of Wall Street can still afford to live it up in a SoCal beachfront home -- despite owing nearly $100 million to his bilked investors -- and now, one New York creditor is calling BS ... chasing Jordan's ass down in California.
LR Credit previously obtained a judgment against Belfort in New York for $27,597 stemming from unpaid retail purchases Belfort made during his heyday -- but Belfort fled to ritzy Manhattan Beach, CA ... where he reportedly rents a $4 million mansion.
By moving to Cali, Belfort escaped LR Credit's judgment against him -- but only temporarily.
The collection agency just filed new legal docs to make their NY judgment enforceable in Cali ... meaning Belfort's back in its crosshairs.
With Belfort's ENDLESS list of other creditors, however, LR may have to wait in line.

w/ First Trespasser Arrest
3/31/2014 7:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Selena Gomez's brand new Calabasas home has lost its cherry ... TMZ has learned a man was arrested on the property last night ... while Selena was home!
As TMZ first reported, Gomez recently purchased a 5-bedroom, 7,200 sq. ft. Calabasas mansion for a cool $3 million.
According to law enforcement sources, Selena and a friend arrived home last night and heard a strange noise. We're told Selena called for her security to check it out.
Our sources say before security could investigate, a guy rang the front doorbell, asking if the pop star was home. The friend answered the door and said she wasn't ... and the guy went on his way.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... sheriff's deputies from the Malibu/Lost Hills department arrived a short time later and found the 21-year-old man had broken into her guest house. He was eventually arrested and charged for burglary and trespassing.
He is currently being held on $50,000 bail.
Drops Millions on Anti-Bieber Mansion
3/29/2014 12:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Selena Gomez is the proud new owner of an anti-Bieber fortress, TMZ has learned.
Real estate sources tell TMZ, the deal closed last week -- Selena threw down roughly $3 million for a 5-bedroom 7,200 sq. ft. Calabasas mansion, located minutes away from the Kardashian empire in Hidden Hills (great for lunch dates with Kendall Jenner).
We're told Selena didn't have many demands while house shopping -- but she refused to budge on one thing ... the home could NOT be in The Oaks ... aka Justin Bieber's old hood.
Lucky for her, Bieber has since become a non-issue -- kid moved his 65-pound ass to Atlanta earlier this month.
